Mini F cub made out of a Cadet

Postby Redcub » Mon May 23, 2011 10:03 pm

Found really nice pic of a Mini F-Cub made out of a Cub Cadet. Does anybody have any info on this project. I love it! :D
How was the hood made? Was the right side axle extended and the left side chopped? I'm very impressed with it.
Do you think the steering gear is from a Cadet or something else? I like the "lawn-vision"

I believe that tractor was built by Ray Brown from Eldridge, IA . I am not sure if he still owns it or if it has been sold. If memory serves me right, the steering box is from a Cub Cadet, and is turned on it's side. I believe he made the front axle and yes the right side is longer than the left. The frame is from a Cub Cadet and the axle pivots on the stock Cub Cadet axle pivot point. Ray also built a mini Farmall B.

I built this one from a Cub Cadet 70, but it is now owned by Kenny & Julie Wilson, from western Kentucky. The steering box on it is also a Cub Cadet unit that is slightly modified. The axle pivot is under the steering box and is centered on the axle.

Ray Brown is an awesome fella. I recently purchased a Mini B from him.... I luv it... I had it in it's 1st parade a couple weeks ago, I had a blast. I attached a picture. He does really great work.
